Our team in Comparative Politics follows a rather modern than traditional approach.
Our research activities lie at the intersection between international and comparative political economy, labour economics, applied quantitative data analysis and political methodology.
The teaching focusses on comparative methods to examine and compare structures, processes and decision making of different governmental systems. It combines research design/ quantitative methods and an analytical approach to explain correlations and to create hypotheses that are empirically provable.
Part of our team are Prof. Dr. Vera Eva Troeger, the research associates Dr. Verena Fetscher and Dr. Tilko Swalve as well the student assistants Zeynep Ceren Topac and Can Bethke. Christiane Westendorf is supporting as team assistant. More information about our team.
